Is there a timeline HR must follow with promotions?

Answer Question

I work for the Dept of VA and have accepted a new position with the Dept. of VA which is a promotion. Does HR have a timeline they have to follow to transfer me into the new position? I have only been offered a tentative offer and am going through the re-boarding process right now. Any information would be very helpful! Thank you.

Hi Liz, If you are being boarded, HR cannot move you into the position until the Board has met and reached a decision. This is true whether you’re Title 38 or Hybrid. If you are title 5 (which it doesn’t sound like), then you need at least one full year in grade before you can be promoted. Hope this helps!
